Well, the obvious answer is easy -- IWB due to weight. OWB would emphasize the weight. Also, IWB is much easier to conceal.
And that guy at Lowe's will be the first one disarmed (or maybe even shot) when the Perps arrive ambush style. Open carry is asking for trouble IMHO. Even if its just lip and stink-eye from the sheeple around you.Regardless, make sure you have a good gun belt, and wear it properly. As the others have said, IWB is going to help to displace the weight of the gun better than OWB, but both have their advantages. Personally, unless I'm in LE or military service I'm not going to wear OWB, unless perhaps I'm hunting or camping, etc., but even then I want to remain concealed. Was at Lowe's the other day and saw this clown (6'3+ @ 400lbs) wearing a thigh rig with a HK VP flopping around on his leg. Silliest thing I've seen in a long time! I am probably more of a gun enthusiast than anyone I know, but I always shake my head and laugh at guys like that.
They told Me that the earliest shipment date is July 17th.Hey OP, I see that you've pulled the trigger and ordered your IWB holsters. Please come back and post photos if you have a few minutes. I'm thinking of ordering IWB next.
I have two OWB Leather Holsters made by Nightingale Leather of Ohio.
Here's a photo of the OWB and the double mag carrier I had made. I ordered a similar holster for my H&K P30SK / P2000SK (same holster fits both with great retention) along with 2 belts of different colors and loved it so much I had to order one for my Sig P226 Legion.
Now, I think I *need* another for my Sig P229 Legion.
I have both a Signess and a Holster addiction and need help. He he!
Great holsters. Just ordered two (more) Predator models. One for my P938 and the other for my Sig 1911 Compact Nitron. I currently have one for daily wear with my M11-a1 and it is really comfortable. You will love 'em.Well I Did it.
I called Wright Leather Works and placed an order for two of Their Banshee Leather IWB holsters. One for My New P220 SSW 10MM with the 5.0 inch barrel and the other for My Full Size P226 Equinox 40 S&W with the 4.4 inch barrel. I also did the Master Collection Upgrade(Soft pigskin lining) and both the Clips and the Leather Snap Straps. Total $366.00 and estimated delivery around August First.
I read all sorts of Reviews and decided that They would be the Best people for what I wanted.
